Learning outcomes

Dutch-taught Bachelor of Bioscience Engineering


1. The Bachelor has profound knowledge, insight and skills in relation to the foundations and the applications of mathematics and natural sciences and the interactions between living matter and the abiotic environment. The Bachelor can apply this knowledge and insights at an advanced level in one of the fields of knowledge and application (majors) offered.

2. The Bachelor can schematically represent and model processes and systems in bio-engineering sciences.

3. The Bachelor can use and integrate knowledge, insight and skills from the different disciplines in natural sciences and from engineering courses when developing simple research projects and experiments.

Engineering attitude

4. The Bachelor can think, design, develop and creatively innovate in a system-oriented and analytical problem solving way.

5. Within a set framework the Bachelor can, under supervision and in a group, conceive, plan and develop a bio-engineering project in a meticulous and result-oriented way. The Bachelor assesses the risks and feasibility of the proposed approach or solution, taking into account the technical, economic and social pre-conditions and the business implications.

Research attitude
